Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (4/11/02, p.106) - Ranked #8 in Rolling Stone's "50 Coolest Records".

Rolling Stone (5/13/99, p.79) - Included in Rolling Stone's "Essential Recordings of the 90's."

Rolling Stone (4/6/95, p.64) - 3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...this English dance-pop outfit...delivers brilliant body music that doesn't neglect the brain. Cool, sexy stuff, it smoothly fuses dub, club and soul, grounding its grace in sampled hip-hop beats..."

Spin (2/95, pp.77-78) - Satisfactory - "...the dark depressive flipside to Soul II Soul's sunny, self-determining optimism. The beats are even slower, the grooves more contemplative than propulsive, the arrangements... influenced by METAL BOX-era P.I.L....The songs rarely allow for emotional release..."

Alternative Press (7/95, p.106) - Ranked #93 in AP's list of the `Top 99 of '85-'95' - "...PROTECTION return[s] Massive to their reggae roots...Thundering bass echoe[s] beneath percolating hip-hop beats and smooth soul grooves...Unlike that of increasingly cartoonish gangstas, Massive's might [is] no media pose..."

Vibe (2/95, p.88) - "...well couched in the sound-system ethic....PROTECTION is a weird piece of work that fits right into the defining mantra of British dance music...A surreal forging of dub, hip hop, soul, and random bugged-out elements..."

New York Times (Publisher) (1/6/96, p.C16) - Included on Neil Strauss' list of the Top 10 Albums of `95 - "...full of loops, echoes, ghostly voices and the conviction that space is as important as sound..."

NME (Magazine) (12/24/94, p.22) - Ranked #13 in NME's list of `The Top 50 Albums Of 1994.'

NME (Magazine) (9/24/94, p.49) - 8 - Excellent - "...Rolling pianos, soft handclaps and a quiet little bass noodle: odd and very grown-up, but cinematically sexy..."
